Next, turn the Autopilot at different velocities!

Setting the velocity for driving and setting the velocity for turning are two separate blocks. This is helpful when you want the robot to drive at a certain velocity but turn at a different one. In a timed competition for example, the robot might drive very quickly around the field but turn more slowly and carefully.

Add the following blocks to your Drive Velocities:

  • The Programmer should add these blocks to your project and then download it to your Autopilot.

  • The Driver should then run the project.

  • Notice how the turning velocities compare to each other. Also, notice how they are different than the driving velocities.

  • Your group should discuss your observations and the Recorder should write them in your engineering notebook.
